  • Camille is a professional dressmaker turned sewing instructor with a wealth of sewing experience that she’s just waiting to teach you

  • This beginner's sewing class will get you acquainted with how a sewing machine works and feel confident to take on projects in just one afternoon! Just see what our previous students have to say about the class.

  • At the end of the day, you will bring home a drawstring bag from this class - perfect for storing your sewing tools.

  • This class is suitable for complete beginner sewists, however, if you're not sure if this is the right sewing class for you please get in touch.

  • This is a sewing class for complete beginners, with little to no knowledge of how to use a sewing machine. Students are encouraged to bring their own sewing machines, if possible. A perfect course to follow on from this one would also be our Beginners Dressmaking Weekend where you can sew your first garment.

What You'll Learn in the Beginners Sewing Class

  • How to thread a sewing machine

  • How to adjust tension, stitch length and width

  • How to use a basic pattern and cut fabric

  • How to hem, topstitch and do a basic finish

  • A dressmakers recommended sewing tools for beginners

In the morning you will learn how to use the sewing machine. We will take a thorough walk-through the threading process, discover how tension works, as well as troubleshooting broken needles and wonky bobbins. 

In the afternoon, you will tackle your first sewing project; a drawstring bag. The drawstring bag allows us cover some very versatile skills, including fabric cutting and pattern handling.

"Camille is my favourite kind of teacher - funny, kind and relaxed, knowledgeable and experienced but unassuming! It feels good at the end of class to have changed into 'someone who can now sew'!"
